Hitchin Town FC’s dreams of an FA Cup run were cruelly dashed on penalties at Top Field on Monday evening after visitors Haringey Borough beat them 3-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw after extra time.

The result was tough on the Canaries after 120 minutes failed to separate the two sides after a similar result in North London on Saturday in the Emirates FA Cup First Qualifying Round replay.

THe visitors Chris Benjamin put the away side ahead in North Herts’ on 25 minutes but Callum Donnelly levelled ten minutes later.

However, hopes of a home victory to propel the Canaries a step closer towards the First Round proper were ended after Haringey triumphed 3-2 in the tense shoot-out. Borough will now take on Vanarama National League South side Welling after Monday’s FA Cup draw paired them with the winners of the game.
